Unfortunetely not. But RealPlayer isn't that bad. I have used far worse software in my days.

Tanking operations have now been underway for more than an hour, everything continues to look good for launch later today. NASA TV is currently airing a static shot from the LC-39A perimeter camera.

On one of the umbilical connections to the "Liquid Hydrogen starboard side". That's a place where "they'd rather not have ice on" to quote Shuttle Launch staff because it may chip off and damage a tile during launch.
